Last year (or was it two years ago?) a scientist attempted to accompany them on their annual migration. His aircraft was a cropduster so that he could get some work in on the way. As it turned out, the pigs only fly south as far as Tennessee, landing in the mountainous areas to nose about in the truffles and corn-dodgers. Several of the pigs crossed the Georgia state line, but didn't like it so they returned to Tennessee. It's said that the water in Georgia is highly flouridated and pigs don't customarily care much about tooth decay!

I see them flying overhead here every Fall. As far as I know, most flying pigs return to the same spot each year. It's where the CIA tried a coup against Castro in 1961, about 90 miles south of Havana, the"Bay of Pigs"!

The front page of yesterday's Cincinnati Enquirer bears a 5-column headline:
"Cincinnati home for Flying Pig Marathon."
The article goes on to say "The first annual Flying Pig Marathon is set for May 9, 1999...."

MR ART WEIL
I just know that all you skeptics out there will be delighted to know that the City of Cincinnati has announced plans to hold a 26.2 mile marathon on Sunday, May 9, 1999. It will be called, appropriately, The Flying Pig Marathon. They expect about 1500 runners for the inaugural race, hoping to attract up to 7500 in the future.
Will, of course, keep you informed.

I wasn't even going to touch that one, but will keep you posted. Didn't know anyone read Cincinnati papers. From what I understand at present each runner will be attached by rope to a flying pig which will help in climbing our many hills. One only hopes the Pig understands the route.

Thousands of awe-struck Muscovites watched as a whole flock of winged pigs flew over their city one fine day in October, 1997. Officials refused to comment on the amazing fly-by, but record numbers of local citizens lined up outside alcohol-rehab centers scattered throughout the city when it happened.





If Pigs Could Fly

If pigs could fly I'd fly a pig to foreign countries small and big,
to Italy and Spain, to Austria where cow bells ring,
to Germany where people sing and then come home again.

I'd see the Ghanges and the Nile, I'd visit Madagascar's isle
and Persia and Peru. People would say they'd never seen
so odd, so strange an air machine as that on which I flew!

Yes everyone would raise a shout to see his trotters and his snout
come floating from the sky. And I would be a famous star
in all the countries near and far, if only pigs could fly.

In scenes that would do Miss Piggy proud, whole plane loads of pedigreed Australian pigs are flying in porcine luxury to overseas destinations to breed more pigs.
The charter flights carrying up to 260 pigs to buyers in Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea, the Philippines and the Solomon Islands. The 50 kg purebred pigs (worth $1500 each) travel under the care of the company that bred them in the first place, Global Livestock Exports Pty Ltd based at Kent River in Western Australia.

I got only one question. Why is it that all the people out there who are objecting to Flying Pigs are doing so while consuming infinite numbers of Buffalo Wings? What is it you think the buffalo does with his wings while he's alive?

On our recent trip to Norman, Oklahoma to see Mariah's sister, Laura, returning thru Nashville, we spotted not 1, but 3! flying pigs arced above an establishment known as "Jack"s Barbeque". The species is alive and well in Music City!

A friend told me pigs could fly and I didn't believe him. He asked me for something and I told him "When pigs fly" now am I in trouble.!!! It is wonderful and I have laughed until I cried. Now I am a believer!!! Thank so much!

In Kingsville, Texas there is a law against two pigs having sex on the city's airport property.

Art, I've heard a rumor that one of the reindeer is ill, and will be replaced this year by a flying pig named Oscar. Can you shed any light on this report?




You can scratch Oscar as a possible reindeer replacement. Oscar just refuses to be harness-broken. He squeels when he has to follow, and when he leads, he doesn't know where he's going. The flying pig who IS on standby is Filomena. She is quite docile and has some experience, having done two Iditerods, her job being to lift the sled over small rivers. Look closely. She wears a shiny, reflective bauble in each ear, and has the number #38 tatooed on her - ah - just below her tail.

I am very pleased to see that you have donated an entire page to me. I am sad to say that us flying pigs don't get the media attention that we deserve. Keep on watching for us!!!

Dear Flying Pig!
Thank you for your compliments! I want to tell you that you are the first of your species to contact me directly... I would like to know more, and maybe post your picture... Do fly by again, please.
